Mosha, an Asian elephant lost her right leg after stepping on a landmine at 7 months old. Close to death, she was rescued and brought to the Friends of the Asian Elephant hospital in Lampang, Thailand, where she became the first elephant in the world to be fitted with a prosthetic leg in 2007. Pictured here in 2009, she was fit with a new leg to keep up with her rapid growth. Her home in the tropical jungle of northern Thailand, near the Cambodian border, is an orphanage for elephants.  The gentle giants are the new symbol of the fight against the banned weapons.  Thousands of Thais have been injured and killed due to landmines, with a recent survey estimating there are about 100 new mine casualties each year.  Mosha is a resident of the Friends of the Asian Elephant hospital in Lampang, Thailand. via dailymail.com #Elephant #Landmine #Mosha #dailymail by IndulgenceLady102

We've heard of rubbers and dolphins mixing once before, but this time, the happy ending has nothing to do with ejaculation. Engineers at Bridgestone Tire Company designed a rubber prosthetic tail fin for Fuji, a dolphin at the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium in Japan who had lost her flipper to disease. It took multiple attempts before they created a tail that worked for Fuji, and now she's enjoying the freedom to swim in isolating captivity. by debra
